Solar Energy Conversion Cluster Funded through Science Foundation Ireland Strategic Research Programme, it is the mission of this cluster to develop new materials and synthesise devices that mimic individually and as a whole the steps involved in natural photosynthesis. Harnessing "free energy" of the sun, together with the application of engineering, chemistry, biochemistry, physics and computational modelling.
Tyndall National Institute created in 2004 at the initiative of the Department of Enterprise Trade and Employment and University College Cork to bring together complementary activities in photonics, electronics and networking research at the National Microelectronics Research Centre, several UCC academic departments and Cork Institute of Technology.
Molesol The consortium gathers 8 organizations from 6 different European countries: Belgium, Czech Republic, Ireland, Germany, Sweden, Switzerland, and Singapore. Interuniversitair Micro-Elektronica Centrum (Coordinator), Ustav fyzikalni chemie J. Heyrovskeho AV CR, Linköpings Universitet Ecole Polytechnique de Lausanne Max-Planck Institute for Polymer Research Greatcell Solar National University of Singapore and SolarPrint Ltd. The proposed project comes with a visionary approach, aiming at development of highly efficient molecular-wire charge transfer platform to be used in a novel generation thin film dye-sensitized solar cells fabricated via organic chemistry routes.
Smartop The concept addressed by SMARTOP is to develop an autonomous smart roof integrating solar photovoltaics (PV), energy storage systems and auxiliaries as thermoelectric (TE) climatic control, electrochromic (EC) glazing, courtesy LEDs lighting and actuators able to increase comfort and fuel economy for both fully electrical (FEV) and internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles.
International Technology Research Institute ITRI is a national research organization, with a mission of conducting technological research, promoting industrial development, creating economic value and improving social welfare for Taiwan. ITRI is not only Taiwan's largest applied technology R&D institution, but also a pioneer in creating Taiwan's high tech industry
Wales Ireland Network for Innovative Photovoltaic Technologies (WIN-IPT) is an inter-regional network (Wales & Ireland), designed to highlight and promote the development of innovation and enhance business opportunities for SMEs working in the area of Photovoltaic (PV) Technologies. The network will create a hub of expertise through knowledge transfer between Higher Education Institutes, SMEs and Local Authorities. The hub will act as a central repository of knowledge and R&D activities that will directly support SMEs working in the cross-border region.
